Adolf Hitler’s residences were the settings for key events in the murderous dictator’s dysfunctional – and frankly disturbing – private life.
Hitler was living in a plush nine-room apartment on Munich’s Prinzregentenplatz when he declared himself Führer in 1934, and used the property thereafter as a place to stay and meet dignitaries when he was visiting the Southern German city.
Hitler liked to show off his apartment to world leaders he was seeking to impress.
Hitler set about remodeling the residence and called upon the services of his personal architect Albert Speer, who went on to oversee extensive slave labor works during World War II.
Hitler would spend time with his lover Eva Braun in the official residence, but their liaisons were discreet and unpublicized.
